Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, ODOC has partnered with Securus Technologies to provide inmates two free phone calls each week while visitation was suspended. With visitation reopening, these free phone calls will continue until April 15. After April 15, phone calls will still be permitted, subject to standard rates and policies.

Monday, April 13, 2020

BROKEN ARROW, Okla. -- Agents with Oklahoma Department of Corrections Inspector General's Office and U.S. Marshals have arrested Jackie Brannon Correctional Center walkaway Jeremiah Hobbs.

Hobbs was located around 6:45 p.m. Monday after a traffic stop at a convenience store in Broken Arrow with his girlfriend, Sara Stocum. Stocum was also arrested and will be booked at David L. Moss Criminal Justice Center for harboring a fugitive.

Hobbs, who walked away on Thursday from JBCC, will be held at Lexington Correctional Center in Lexington for a two-week quarantine due to COVID-19 precautions.

He was serving an eight-year sentence out of Tulsa County for second-degree burglary when he walked away from JBCC, a minimum-security prison located in McAlester. ODOC has submitted to prosecutors the results of its investigation for a potential felony escape charge.
